Description
 
Nearly 150 years after publishing his theory of evolution, Charles Darwin remains not only central to biology and medicine but also deeply controversial. Darwin still receives much of the credit, and the blame, for what science understands about the evolutionary process and what society thinks we should -- or shouldnít -- teach about that process in our schools. David Quammen has created a meticulous, humane portrait of the man, and a lucid explication of his work, that captures both the personal foibles and the scientific substance. Itís an intimate view of a great scientist -- taking readers behind the veil of Darwinís greatness and his fame, following him closely through the joys, struggles, and sorrows of his quiet but extraordinarily consequential life.
